Reminds me of a mixture between a TIE pilot and a neo viper







In other words...I LOVE IT.

What a terrifying way to portray a villain. That mask is downright horrifying. Nice job, Snyder!

Quote:
In The Iceman, you pal around with Chris Evans, who is Captain America in another life. In this summer’s Man of Steel, you play General Zod, who has it in for Superman. We both grew up with Terence Stamp’s Zod and his shiny Studio 43 costume from Superman I and II. How’s your Zod going to be different?

Well, I have a very different voice than Terence Stamp. When I sat down and talked with Zack [Snyder] about how he wanted me to approach the part, he just said that what was really important to him is that Zod wasn’t just some villain who was full of an arbitrary need to destroy everything. He’s not really actually the villain at all on Krypton. He’s a general. Not general of a country. He’s general of an entire planet. Just an awesome amount of responsibility and pressure. He’s responsible for taking care of that civilization, and for a long time, he was pretty good at it. And then he hit some bumps in the road, and now he’s just desperate to try and fix things up.

Interesting. I like that approach. As much as I loved Stamp's Zod, I always wondered how the hell a guy that batsh** crazy ever got to be a general in the first place.

Also, the Shannon/Evans thing makes me hope someone makes a list of all the times a superhero actor has acted with another superhero actor, not in a superhero film. I bet that list would be massive.

Pretty much Zod feels like he ****ed up somehow with Krypton pretty much going extinct and it took a toll on him it seems like.

Makes you wonder how Jor-El and Zod come to blows. Maybe Zod sees a natural birthed Kryptonian as something that belongs in the custody of the government and oversteps his authority in hunting down the El's.

Maybe it's just jealousy. Jor-El was able to knock up him wife, while Zod is impotent for some reason.

I'm unfamiliar with Superman lore, but can someone explain why people on Krypton can not have children naturally?

They can in the books. This may be something they're putting their own spin on.

There was a precedent in the Last Days of Krypton series where Krypton, after centuries of technological advancement and a clone war that fatally damaged the planet, had taken to having Kryptonian couples (usually anonymously selected) donate the necessary materials to a mechanical birthing Matrix that would carry the child to term.

Supposedly, they're making it less cold, but keeping some of the concept.

Don't think this has been posted yet...

Michael Shannon as General Zod in ‘Man of Steel’: No need to kneel

http://www.suntimes.com/entertainmen...tm_source=t.co

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
“I hope I don’t get into trouble for telling you this, but I don’t say that line in the movie,” he divulges. “I do not say, ‘Kneel before Zod.’ But I’m perfectly happy to say it to you right now.

“Chicago, kneel before Zod!” he jokes.


Is that settled, then?

We now know that Shannon can control his body and has been to the same asham as Stamp. Just so you can know that TMI.

He very well could have played him if given the role.
